"Let me take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of London; I'll show you something that will make you change your mind."

From my personal collection of amazing antique art treasures I'm very pleased to present to you "Cheapside, London, England" as it stood in the year 1890. Check out the gas lamps, cobblestone pavement and horse drawn carriages in this wonderful period illustration.

London was a very different world 125 years ago. There were no automobiles, electricity was still in it's infancy and photography was a relatively new and very exciting invention.

For the very wealthy, there were lavish picture books for people to gaze upon... exotic and wonderful far off places around the globe; like the book this delightful 8.5" x 11" illustrated plate came from. The print itself measures 6" x 8" and simply yells "FRAME ME!"

'The Strand' has been printed on ever so perfect heavy paper with just a tiny sheen and is smooth and clean; without wrinkles or pings or marks. This oldie is a true gem.

Matted, framed and displayed as a gallery grouping, these lovely old travelogue prints are simply spectacular. (Please note that the framed examples in the last two photos are just to show how this might look when it's matted and framed. Your antique print will come unmatted and unframed.)

Surrender Dorothy offers a non-stop jaw-dropping cornucopia of frame-worthy antique and vintage prints, drawings, ads, sketches, plans, lithos, engravings, posters, maps, charts and illustrations of all kinds to adorn every room in your happy home. Terrific finds to gussy up your workplace too.

Our entire inventory moves in and out of here very quickly and fresh selections are added each day, Please be sure to bookmark our shop and check back to visit us often so you don't miss our latest discoveries.

I'll send this to you First Class Mail by way of those nice folks at the USPS packed flat and protected in a rigid mailer.
